Public Corruption-It’s our top priority among criminal investigations—and for good reason. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) website, “Public corruption poses a fundamental threat to our national security and way of life.” They state that it impacts everything from the security of borders and neighborhoods to the quality of things like schools, government services and even roads. Then they mention public corruption even impacts “verdicts handed down in courts.” They state that public corruption, costs Americans billions in tax dollars every year. The FBI is singularly situated to combat this corruption, with the skills and capabilities to run complex undercover operations and surveillance, but so far, in the case of family court corruption, the FBI is a no-show.
The statements above, which came from the FBI website, give Americans one big question. If the FBI is so qualified to combat family court corruption, as “to verdicts handed down in courts” suggests, why does the agency act as if the corruption problem doesn’t exist? With the power to combat corruption, it would seem only fitting that the FBI would actively investigate into the matter and take care of the corruption that goes on in family court.
Three major schemes, that are basically the same but target different groups of individuals, are perpetrated in family court by judges, attorneys, government agencies, and others in the system. The corruption schemes target parents who are divorcing, families with children under age 18, and the elderly/disabled population. There are many people in the three targeted groups, and since family court corruption has a ripple effect, many more are affected. Few people realize that the government has the power to ruin their lives through the legal system until they are stuck like a bug in the spiderweb of deceit.
The divorce regime involves divorcing parents, and usually targets the father. Children are forcibly separated from parents who are stripped of the care, custody, and companionship of their children without explanation. Family court judges and social workers, who usually work for government agencies, have almost unlimited power. The divorce regime corruption operates through political power, money, and fear. Adult victims can expect to be locked up in jail without charges or a trial, forced to confess, accused of child abuse, forced to pay for professional services, and have their homes and possessions illegally searched or stolen, while receiving nothing but doctored court dockets from the kangaroo court proceedings. Children are often instructed to hate, or act as an informer against, one or both parents.
Isolate, medicate, take the estate – That is the motto of the crooks who prey on the elderly, as well as the disabled. Systemic elder abuse/Medicare fraud often involves the Area Agency on Aging, a government entity that receives federal dollars to advocate for the elderly. In this manner of corruption, Elders are removed from their families or possibly put in the care of an abusive family member who teams up with the crooks. The elders might be placed into federal programs or nursing homes, and they might be given psychotropic or other drugs they don’t need. Concerned family members are not allowed to see them, and are often accused of abusing them. The elders’ assets disappear, and often they end up in nursing homes until the end of their lives, at taxpayers’ expense.
Child Protective Services (CPS) investigates reports of child abuse, and agency caseworkers decide when children should be placed in foster care. CPS has a long history of removing children from, often poor, homes for profit, under the guise of doing “what is best for the children.” Parents and children are victimized by the system that makes a profit for holding children longer and “bonuses” for not returning children. CPS is guilty of “legally kidnapping” children from good homes, and it’s guilty of not removing children from bad homes, including foster homes. The late Georgia State Senator Nancy Schaefer investigated CPS corruption in her state. Senator Schaefer said, “… I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken almost beyond repair.”
The following statements reflect the views of American citizens, that uphold the alleged corruption going on in family court, in which the FBI is a no-show. About elders placed into the state system, a website for the purpose of stopping guardian abuse said, “Adult guardianship has become a feeding trough for unethical lawyers and other ‘fiduciaries’…American Taxpayers… are forced to pay the Medicaid tab for continued lifelong care.” On children becoming wards of the state, Eagle Forum said, “… it is more accurate to say that ultimately they have become wards of the state, which establishes what amounts to a puppet government within the family.” The Protective Mother’s Alliance International also commented on children who become wards of the state when they said, “…two preteen sisters have been seized from their parents’ custody by Child Protective Services and Phoenix Children’s Hospital…when a child is a ward of the state, medical research may be conducted on the child.”
Why do children and adults become wards of the state or more correctly, “property” of the government, and by extension, dependent upon taxpayers? The answer is simple – follow the money. Somehow, somewhere, somebody is making money. And in most cases, many entities and individuals are taking advantage of the ward and using him or her for personal or professional profit, a corruption which the FBI has yet to handle. As the Protective Mothers Alliance International also stated, “According to Health Impact News, it is a case of “follow the money.” The girls just happen to have this “rare and genetically significant condition [which] is a potential goldmine to pharmaceutical companies and researchers. The odds of finding two sisters with THIS same rare genetic condition is like winning a billion dollars in the lottery, at least for the entities that discovered them.”
It seems as though the government is running our lives, but yet they are ignoring the corruption affecting them. But why would the FBI investigate public corruption? With all of the statements that reflect the way Americans feel about the corruption that is going on, it seems as though the FBI would take an interest, if not for the good of those being harmed by the corruption, then for the good of those who witness it.
